10 Must See Black Friday Gadget Deals

If you live in the US, then chances are you’ve heard of Black Friday. It’s the day after Thanksgiving that retailers hold special sales to lure you in to get your  holiday shopping dollars. Whether you’re shopping for holiday gifts or just looking for deals on stuff, Black Friday, the fairly new Local/Small Business Saturday and Now Cyber Monday (the Monday following Thanksgiving) are worth checking out. Sometimes the savings can be substantial and if it saves you a few bucks on something you were going to buy anyway, why not take it?

I’m not one to go out and stand in line to save a few bucks on something, however I will absolutely check out online deals for gear.

As you might imagine I get all kinds of emails advertising Black Friday deals. So I’ve decided to share some of the ones I’ve hand picked here based on technology, Adobe, iOS/Apple, Photography and the other things that I’m interested in. So here are my Top 10 Picks in no particular order:

And here’s a reminder of one of the reasons that I don’t go out shopping on Black Friday:

Only in America do people trample each other to save a few bucks the day after giving thanks for the things they have. Have fun out there and be safe!

    I couldn’t agree with you more about standing in long lines to save a few dollars! It was amazing to see campers (yes, they stayed in tents outside the store) in front of our local Best Buy…ONE WEEK AGO! Someone in Best Buy told me the other day that many of the Black Friday “deals” are actually the same deals they run throughout the year!

    Anyway, I didn’t realize there may be some deals for Small Business Saturday. I will definitely have to look into that.

    Thanks, again, Terry for all the great info you share with your readers :)
